READYMADE BABY
For children 0 – 3 years.

In this performance the term "readymade" refers to an understanding of the child as competent and ready to meet with artwork.
The performance is developed in close interplay with children. Specially designed objects , a doll and costumes create together with other readymades as umbrellas, megaphones and scrubbing gloves, the formal and visual frames of the performance.
The perceptible appears through touch, dance, song and other audile expressions. The readymades from the French –American artist Marcel Duchamp stretched and challenged the definition of art.
Children 0 -3 years do not yet know the conception of art, but are actively present int the meeting with art work. Hereby the children can, equally with Duchamp, challenge how we look upon art.
